Nutella Class Action Settlement

I just read an interesting article on MSN about Nutella Spread.  I knew there was a Class Action out on it, but haven’t taken the time to figure out why.  Anyway, you can read the article there if you want, but I think they are being a bit hard on them.

Long story short – IF you have purchased Nutella Spread between 08-01-2008 and 02-03-2012 then you are entitled to compensation of up to $4 a jar.  You do not need your receipt and you can file electronically here.  Claims need to be submitted before 07-05-2012

Settlements have been reached in two class action lawsuits against Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. (“Ferrero”) regarding its labeling, advertising and marketing of the Nutella brand hazelnut spread. The Settlements provide Class Members who do not opt out the opportunity to receive monetary relief as well as prospective relief in the form of corrective labeling, advertising and marketing. The lawsuit claims that Ferrero made statements suggesting that Nutella is healthier than it actually is.

Who is included in the Settlements?
Included in the Settlements are:

• Anyone who purchased Nutella in any state other than California, between January 1, 2008 and
February 3, 2012 (“Nationwide Class”), and
• Anyone who purchased Nutella in California between August 1, 2009 and January 23, 2012
(“California Class”).

      You might contact them and see what you can find out. It usually only takes a couple of months at most.
